Scott Ian Barry has had more than thirty years of experience as a wildlife photographer. His photos have been published in the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times and with the Smithsonian Institution and the Sierra Club. Barry has appeared with a wolf at Carnegie Hall in New York City and on NBC's Today Show. His extraordinary photos of wolves appear in the children's book Kingdom of the Wolves, which won the oustanding science trade book award from the National Science Teacher's Association, and in a wolf calendar. After privately viewing Barry's award-winning wildlife portfolio, Ansel Adams called Barry's images "striking and generous portraits." Barry lives in Woodstock, New York.
"I've tracked them, fought them in a film (Jeremiah Johnson), and narrated a Natural History Museum recording of their language. I know this much. They are much misunderstood, but they are smart, cunning and important to the overall balance of our threatened ecosystem. They are more than worth preserving. This book provides an excellent chart to understanding this very special animal." --Robert Redford "WOLF EMPIRE is a magnificent portrait of one of nature's most majestic creatures, the wild wolf. Here we see their cunning, playfulness, beauty and killer instincts in an unforgettable album that gives us unique insights into their character and place in our lives." --Tom Brokaw "Mr. Barry has caught the intelligence and beauty of these magnificent creatures and helps us understand the American wolf a little better." --Ted Turner "Having spent nearly two decades working to restore these magnificent creatures to the hunting grounds of their ancestors in the wilds of the American West, I welcome Scott Ian Barry's rare and eloquent glimpse into the lives of wolves. As we become more intimate with these beings, we gain a better understanding of our own role in the circle of life." --Rob Edward, director, Carnivore Restoration Program, Sinapu (www.Sinapu.org) "Award-winning photographer Scott Ian Barry's deep personal connection with wolves is on full display in his gorgeous book." --Audubon
